Pintley Partners with Tap Hunter to Create the World’s Largest Beer Location Database
A few months ago, we mentioned that we were working on something special with our friends over at Tap Hunter. Today, I’m proud to announce that Pintley and Tap Hunter are partnering to create the world’s largest beer location database. You can read the full press release here.
If you haven’t seen them already, sometime today or tomorrow you’ll notice beer locator buttons like the one pictured below on beer pages around the website. Clicking one of these buttons will help you discover where that beer is available in your area, both on tap and at bottle shops and liquor stores.
This data comes from a variety of sources, including Tap Hunter’s location information, Pintley’s check-ins, and the breweries themselves. When you look at a specific location, we’ll even tell you where the data is coming from and when the beer was last seen, so it’s easy to know how up-to-date the information is. We’re about half way finished with our data integration with Tap Hunter, meaning that you’ll see even more beer availability information in the next few weeks.
We’ll be submitting an update to the iPhone App Store tomorrow and to the Android Market early next week, so you’ll have access to these features on your phones as well! Here’s a look at what the new screens will look like:
As the Beer Finder feature rolls out, please feel free to drop us a line and let us know how it’s working for you.
Cheers from Team Pintley!
